Good yarn but showing its age
Would you listen to The Quick Red Fox again? Why?
No. Kept me entertained, but not archival by any means.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes. Several nice twists and surprises.
What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?
His voicing of Travis McGee. His female voices are not so good
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Travis McGee--A romantic in a cynical shell.
Any additional comments?
I'm delighted that Travis McGee is on Audible. The books are entertaining and still have some excellent writing, although some philosophy found here is not PC.

A man from the first half of the 20th century
These are classic mystery stories written at a time when $10,000.00 was equal to $100,000.00 in today dollars. Also men and women had different rolls. If you take that into the balance of the story, you can enjoy the mystery, and how Trav solves each problem he encounters. I have started with book one, and have now completed book 7. They all get better I have found. Just have to get used to some of the dated language and interplay between characters. It's not 2012, but late 1960's. I still find the stories really well written and have enough mystery and strange turns of events to make each Travis McGee story a gem.
